Psalm 127 - In Praise of God's Goodness

1. If the LORD does not build the house,
the work of the builders is useless;
if the LORD does not protect the city,
it does no good for the sentries to stand guard.
2. It is useless to work so hard for a living,
getting up early and going to be late.
For the LORD provides for those he loves,
while they are asleep.

3. Children are a gift from the LORD;
they are a real blessing.
4. The sons a man has when he is young
are like arrows in a soldier’s hand.
5. Happy is the man who has
many such arrows.
He will never be defeated
when he meets his enemies in
the place of judgement.
